Children and Teens
Due to liability and security issues, IDAA will not sponsor childcare for children 1-6 this year in Portland. For families needing this service, we suggest that you contact Michelle Davenport of Creative Childcare Solutions, a fully licensed and respected agency, at (503) 518-2274. Each family is responsible for making their own arrangements.
IDAA is extremely pleased to be able to once again offer a children's program originating from the Betty Ford Center and facilitated by Jerry Moe. This three day program utilizes art, games, story telling, films, written exercises, role play and recreation to help youngsters build strengths and deepen their resilience. Skilled counselors lead special groups for the children. The program for kid 7-12 years of age, runs from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday with the parents joining the children for part of the last day. All registered children are required to attend the full program. There is room for 70 kids this year. Please book early, the registration will be on a first come first served bases.
PARENTS! Plan on being there on Saturday at 3:00 pm for the Kids graduation. You won't want to miss it.
This program will be run similar to in years past. There continues to be strong support from the Al-Anon committee to make this program an enjoyable learning experience for all participants.
